Eventually, it’s time to part with your furniture. When that time comes, get rid of it properly. From donating old furniture to repurposing it, there are many options when it is time to getting rid of old furniture.

From the Desk to the Dresser, You can Donate it All

If you decide to donate your furniture to charity, you need to make sure it’s clean. They should not be any rips or tears, stains, or any other damage. However, some charities will renovate “well-loved” furniture. You need to ask them about it before you drop it or they pick it up.

Give Your Furniture Away Online

There are quite a few places online for you to get rid of furniture that you no longer need or want. For example, Craigslist and Freecycle.

Refurbishing is a Good Idea

If your furniture is still usable but looks ugly, do not give it away. Many pieces of furniture can be stripped down and rebuilt. A couch can be reupholstered, and a bookshelf can be sanded and stained. From new cushions to a new finish, any piece of furniture that is old can look new again. By refurbishing your furniture instead of replacing, you save on the expense of buying new furniture.
